I'm working on several things, a little bit at the time. That's why nothing gets done any time soon.
On the left are the four main squares for a blanket. I'll repeat them until the yarn runs out. I've deceided to knit them in fours, weave in the ends and so on. I just couldn't face all the ends in the end!
On the right you see my courthouse steps. Growing very slowly. I'm afraid I'll have to order some additional yarn to make it a decent sized blanket. At least this one's soooooo soft and warm (cotton/microfiber) But I'm taking a break from blanket knitting for a while. I need to do some small projects I wanted to do for some time otherwise I'll be too restless to enjoy the knitting process.
The Not-Quite-Straight Scarf is my latest project. I've started it last night. You can find the pattern at Nicole's blog. Thanks Nicole! I'm using Queenland Collection Kathmandu DK a blend of merino wool/silk/cashmere from my stash. Had this yarn some time now and it was indented for a scarf anyway.
My DH socks are coming along nicely too. One's got the gusset done, the other's still waiting for it. I like sock knitting again. I see many pairs of socks in my future - hard not too with all the sock yarn piling up around me. ;o)
This green squirly thing is a mystery project. I'd like to show it when it's totally done. It's made of cotton and it seems I've gotten a blister or something on my finger where the yarn runs over. It's knit with two strands and I've run out of yarn, drats. Have to wait for more supplies to arrive. But I can tell you, that I love this project, even though it hurts my fingers.
Last but not least, this is a multidirectional flying V scarf (by Iris Schreier) from her book "Exquisite Little Knits". Made with two balls of mohair/wool/acrylic blend. It's 5" X 76" long and will be nice and warm for the recipient I'm sure. Hope she'll like it.
So, you see, there's lots going on. Making progress on all fronts. Thanks to A/C the heat is not bothering me much. And a dunk in the pool makes life that much easier too. Have a nice summer day y'all! By the way, I friend of mine started her own new blog. You can see Sybille's nice projects here. She makes wonderful shawls (and has the cutest dog-after mine of course) ;o)
